If a picture paints a thousand words...then this book says quite a lot. Until this book, I had never heard of a photobiography, but I liked the concept. Paterson breaks down Churchill's life into periods (nothing new here) and writes a two page summery at the beginning of each. Then he writes a context for each picture. In this contextual set up, Paterson was able to accomplish a great deal, and I was surprised to learn loads of history beyond Churchill himself.

The down-side to the written part

My one complaint about this book is the size and color of they text. It as if they don't want you to read it.
